Cluster on Language Research and Linguistic Graduate Student Association
While at UC Davis, I served as both supporting and lead chair for the Linguistic Graduate Student Association. In 2019, I was also elected as a co-chair for the Cluster on Language Research an interdepartmental organization run by graduate students from both the Linguistics and the Spanish and Portuguese departments. We draw our diverse membership from a handful of UC Davis departments, including Education, Psychology, Computer Science, Native American Studies, Mathematics, as well as various language departments like French, German, and Japanese, among others. My co-chair, Daniela Cerbino, and I were responsible for planning and organizing the annual language symposium. For our biweekly meetings, we invited speakers and panelists who conduct language-related research to give presentations as well as invite faculty members to lead professional development workshops for our members.
